IBM's ImagePlus™ system is designed to permit the capture, storage, management, and retrieval of documents through digital imaging. The ImagePlus Workstation Program is that portion of the ImagePlus system that controls the user's workstation. This paper describes the challenges that were posed in designing an ImagePlus Workstation, and the approach taken by the development group to solve them. The primary design goal was to deliver operational performance for image processing in a cost-effective workstation, while permitting the user maximal control in viewing and manipulating scanned documents. The solution chosen implemented a Personal System® workstation that operates with a System/36, Application System/400®, or System/370 Multiple Virtual Storage host.
